While working on an OB floor, you would be shocked at the things we hear:
1. FOB to RN: "Miss is it ok if I cut the biblical cord?"
2. 2 seperate triage pts on 2 seperate nights, when asked if the were
going to breast or bottle feed: "Miss, I ain't got no titties"
3. Pt to unit clerk: "I'm here to be reduced"--she was scheduled to be
4. The patient stated that her vagina was swollen but her belly was so
huge that she couldn't see it...when the nurse asked, if she couldn't
see it how did she know it was swollen: "My mother-in-law says it's
swollen"--now I don't care how much I like my MIL, it's just not happening!!
There are so many more, but at this hour of the night they escape me...
